I should have started with this:

I am working on a search engine . Unlike a todoapp, it requires more hardware, having an idea of how much people are willing to spend upfront or by subscription renting a server will help me figure what kind of hardware I need to acquire to be able to test the algorithms.

Thanks for you cooperation! (and please boost!)

have you ever thought "dang that's an adorable bunch of bezier curves"

I made a review of a program that is a privacy respecting search engine.

Also made a small rework with

How do people feel about a "pay to version" FOSS funding strategy? Where all source is open, but a certain dollar amount is set, and once it's reached a new release is made. So the paid advantage is pre-built binaries, and updates in distro repos and homebrew taps. But anyone who builds from source is ok.

Please boost :boost_ok:

Time has come to ask myself the same question I ask my self every single Friday at 6:00 PM...

Given a search engine that is privacy respecting that you can self-host on your own hardware.

How much are you ready to spend on a home server upfront that will last 3 to 5 years and can support your whole family and friends:

Based on how search engines work (keep the index fresh, store the data to be queried) a pay-per-use approach is not sustainable

How much are you willing to pay for subscription for a search engine per month per person ?

(see the previous pool)

How many times a day you use a search engine (please RT).

Bonjour!

J'essaye de construire un corpus / dataset d'article et site web traitant de l'informatique en français.

Est-ce que c'est possible d'avoir un dump de toute les URL partage sur journalduhacker ?

Merci d'avance 🙂

En dehors du fait que je trouve l'idee du logiciel elegante, j'en est aussi besoin pour mon travail de recherche a la wikiversity.

Hey people from and .

(french below)

You might already know I work on an alternative the software that support wikidata. I think provenance and license should be kept track of in a structured database.

What do you think about that idea?

Feel free to ask questions?

Je travaille sur un logiciel alternatif aux logiciels qui supporte wikidata. Je pense qu'il faut garder une trace de la provenance ainsi que la license.

Qu'est ce que vous pensez de ça? Questions?

Hello Fediverse!

It's been more than 60 days since "FEP-a4ed: The Fediverse Enhancement Proposal Process" was received.

I kindly request final comments before the proposal is finalized.

If there are no objections the proposal will be finalized in two weeks (on 18th of January).
